Dear Ms. Ash,
I saw the posting for a Cost Estimator with Koniag Inc. and I was anxious to send in my resume because I have the education, skills and training needed to be the best person for this job.
I completed a two-year internship in this field to gain hands-on experience after earning my bachelor’s degree in construction management, both of which has helped prepare me for this position. I am great with numbers and I have extensive knowledge of computers and the programs used in this profession.
My experience includes gathering information about different projects to estimate the overall costs based on the cost of materials, labor, length of time to complete a project and other relevant factors. I also have experience working with and reading schematic drawings and blueprints.
I can help plan the budget for projects and monitor the expenses through the duration of the project. I have the skills to put together a financial summary and to create a proposal for projects along with the ability to present my findings. I can handle the stressful environment and working under tight deadlines that are often associated with this type of job, while maintaining a friendly and professional attitude at all times.
I possess a Certified Cost Technician certification, which proves I am updated on all the latest methodologies and tools associated with this profession. I am confident that I have the experience needed to help your company increase profits by minimizing expenses.
You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope that you will consider me as one of the top candidates for this position.
